I was so happy to go to Aguás Lindas today. It was a surprise for the kids, so that made it all better. There are so many that I do not know, and many of the kids that i DO know and did not see. However, I got to reunite with many of them, and it was sooooooo good! I am still not feeling too good, so Graça did not make me do too much...I was able to get the kids to repeat sentences after me, and Graça likes that because I am a native English speaker, so therefore they can here how it sounds better than if she does it, even though she speaks amazing English!
She teaches 4 classes on WEdnesdays and Fridays, 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. So, by the fourth class she was really tired. Please pray for her...she has not been well for a month and has just recovered from surgery. So, she is really tired. And she wants to come to Canada for a visit. I will also pray for all of you that need prayer. Oh my goodness...today I learned sooooo many Portuguese words. It is so good to be in Graça´s classes, even though she does speak mostly in Portuguese, because she has to translate the English words for them so I get to learn what they are as well! Legal!!!! (that means "cool" in Portuguese) Well, I should go. Louisa and Pamela´s parents are here and I should go meet them(that´s Graça´s daughter and son-in-law). ttyl
Love, Ash :)

Hey Ash,
Sounds like each day is going to bring you an exciting challenge.
I am sure that the children were as happy to see you as you were to see them.
It must be "Legal" to be learning a new language every day.
I am sure that you are "soaking it up like a sponge"!
We will pray that Graça will be feeling better from her recent surgery.
Hope that you will soon start to feel better from your cold too.
O que você vai fazer hoje à noite?
Bom fim de semana!
Bom divertimento!
Saúde!
Tchau! Nan xoxox
